Autumn View of Sudeley Castle

Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire, United KingdomSudeley Castle, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom (Nov. 2012).

I’ve visited Sudeley Castle three times since moving to England just over a year ago, but I’d never seen the castle from afar until this past weekend. These photos were taken from the “pull in” beside the road to Charlton Abbots just outside of Winchcombe. I didn’t even know such a view was available, so I was pleasantly surprised (to say the least…I jumped out of the car so fast in order to take pictures before the light changed that I stepped into mud before changing into my hiking shoes! But one must suffer for one’s art, right? Well, if not art, then at least for a picture I’m pleased with.)

Otherwise, please enjoy this last view of the castle nestled in the Cotswold countryside.

    Hi, I have just come across this blog post and would love to find this view of Sudely Castle when I visit the Cotswolds in a few weeks time. Can you remember which exact road it was on? Thanks so much, Catherine – catherine@bumpkinhill.com

    • Hello Catherine, The road is unnamed (?) but is show as part of the Cotswold Way off of Corndean Lane. If you paste these coordinates: 51.934622, -1.972048 into Google Maps, it should show you the location of a layby on the road where you can park and view Sudeley Castle. Let me know if you have any trouble finding the location. Best of luck and I hope you enjoy your visit to the beautiful Cotswolds.
